The Best Tools For Filming

1. Lapel Microphone

If you’re looking for pristine, clear audio, this lapel microphone is a game-changer. Whether you attach it to your shirt or hold it for handheld speaking, this little gadget ensures great audio quality.

2. Portable Tripod

This compact tripod is a must-have for on-the-go filming. Its collapsible design allows it to effortlessly slip into your backpack, making it ideal for content creators who are always on the move.

3. LED Video Light

A great vlog light that offers adjustable warm and white light settings, and the added bonus of being rechargeable.

4. Joby GorillaPod

The perfect tripod for filming in more awkward spaces. Its flexible, wrappable legs can be contorted to grip almost anything, giving you the perfect filming angle every time.

5. Octobuddy

For spontaneous, hands-free content creation, the this suction phone mount is a must. It securely attaches to the back of your phone, allowing you to mount it on walls, mirrors, or windows.

6. Phone Mount

Though most tripods will come with the phone attachment, I LOVE this one because it simplifies the process of securing your phone to the tripod, and its 360-degree rotation feature empowers you to film in the orientation that best suits your content.

Creating top-notch content doesn’t always require a large investment. The key is to choose the right tools that align with your needs and budget.
